Classic PC Games

Take a step back in time and revisit your favorite DOS and Windows games. The files available in this collection consist primarily of PC demos, freeware, and shareware. These files are the original releases which will require intermediate to advanced knowledge to install and run on modern operating systems. If you would rather simply try some classic MS-DOS games inside your browser you may wish to try the online MS-DOS Software Library. New games are added to this collection on a weekly basis.

Specific news regarding major updates can be found on our website Demu.

If you are the copyright holder of a classic computer game and would like the full version of your work to appear in the archive please e-mail me at swizzle@demu.org. I'm also more than happy to answer questions and fill requests.

Compatibility Information
The majority of these games will not run correctly on modern operating systems. For DOS titles you will need to use DOSBox. You can find an easy to follow DOSBox tutorial here.

Most Windows titles will need to be run through Windows Virtual PC under the appropriate version of Windows for full functionality. Some titles may *mostly* work by simply configuring them to use a compatibility mode.

If you are running Linux, BSD, Solaris or Mac OS X, Wine will run most of the older Windows based software (and DOSBox).

Isometric arkanoid with three difficulty levels, bonuses rarely seen in this type of games (shooting ball, pinball-style speed accelerators) and strategy elements. This is freeware version of URSE Games' game "Nuclear Ball". The latter one can still be purchased from developer's site and both seem to be identical products (but with altered names) with all features available.

Azteca is an almost exact clone of popular Zuma games, developed by PopCap Games. For those unaware: the goal in each level is to destroy the chain of balls moving along the grooved path (or multiple paths), before it reaches the exit. Balls come in different colours and to destroy portion of the chain you have to shoot the ball with your paddle to match at least three identically coloured balls. Like in every game from the genre more explosions in one shoot give more combo points of course and...

5 Realms of Cards is a different kind of card-game. You don't play solitaire or such in this, and you don't have to compete with computer opponents who have clearly been playing tournaments for years. This game is all about trivial gaming for fun. You travel the 4 realms of the different colors of cards, and then a 5th for jokers. When you enter a realm of say diamonds, the card games are mostly based on diamonds, though the different types of games are more or less the same, but with a lot of...

Voyage Puzzle is a ball-matching puzzle game. The goal in each level is to remove all tiles from the board within the given time period. To break the tile you need to create the chain of three or more identical balls which will adjoin it. Later levels introduce more complex boards where it's more difficult to match balls and tiles which are harder to destroy - they either need more chains to break them or are locked. To break the locked tile you need either to use a bonus key or to create a...

Smart puzzle game with brilliant graphics and relaxing music. In order to win the levels you have to place at least 3 diamonds of the same color in a line. This will make the diamonds disappear and give you points. Every turn that you make that you don't get 3 on a row, new crystals will start to form, and while they are small and passable at first, they quickly grow big enough to be moved and be in your way. If there is no clear path from the diamond you want to move to the place you want it...

The game plays like Cake Shop, Flo on the Go and Ore No Ryomi 1 and its sequel, which are on our site. The deal is to build up a cake shop by buying new fittings for the shop, getting it a better rumour and serving customers quickly. When all this is taken care of you also get the opportunity to build yourself a home in the city so you wont feel homesick anymore. Granted - the game is rather girly, but it actually plays very addictively. The game has a Barbie-feel to it, and that might take a...
